10. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou)

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
Synopsis – Sorata is kicked out of his high-school dorms for keeping a cat, and moves into a small dorm called Sakurasō. It turns out that all the residents, in addition to being uncontrollable and weird, are outstanding in some way: a well-known animator, a scriptwriter, a programmer. A beautiful girl called Mashiro moves in who is an internationally known painter but is so devoted to art that she can’t even dress, and Sorata is given the job of looking after her. Through her and the other residents, he learns who he is and what he wants to do.

Similarity – Both have a main character who is surrounded by crazy people and are trying to get into the entertainment Industry.
Sakurasou has both comedy and Drama and Dagashi is a pure comedy (so far…)

9. Barakamon

barakamonSynopsis – Seishuu Handa is an up-and-coming calligrapher: young, handsome, talented, and unfortunately, a narcissist to boot. When a veteran labels his award-winning piece as “unoriginal,” Seishuu quickly loses his cool with severe repercussions.

As punishment, and also in order to aid him in self-reflection, Seishuu’s father exiles him to the Goto Islands, far from the comfortable Tokyo lifestyle the temperamental artist is used to. Now thrown into a rural setting, Seishuu must attempt to find new inspiration and develop his own unique art style—that is, if boisterous children (headed by the frisky Naru Kotoishi), fujoshi middle schoolers, and energetic old men stop barging into his house! The newest addition to the intimate and quirky Goto community only wants to get some work done, but the islands are far from the peaceful countryside he signed up for. Thanks to his wacky neighbors who are entirely incapable of minding their own business, the arrogant calligrapher learns so much more than he ever hoped to.

Similarity – Both shows are set in rural Japan, strong in comedy and give a light-hearted feeling. Each story focuses on one main topic, Barakmon on calligraphy and Dagashi Kashi on candy. Character designs & voice acting are really great in both of these…

 

8. Cuticle Tantei Inaba (Cuticle Detective Inaba)

Cuticle Tantei InabaSynopsis – In a world where half-human, half-animal chimeras live and work alongside normal people, there are sure to be a few bad apples in the bunch. Unfortunately, half-human criminals mean non-human clues that often leave the police stumped. That’s where lone wolf detectives like Hiroshi Inaba come in. Don can wolf down more ill-gotten dough, but he’s going to have to chew his way through a lot of evidence to get his goat. Can sheer dogged detective work put the baaaaad guys behind bars?

Similarity – Both are pretty mediocre but still have some really funny parts here and there, also both have a really weird plot.

 

7. Oshiete! Galko-chan (Please tell me! Galko-chan)

 Oshiete! Galko-chan (Please tell me! Galko-chan)Synopsis – Oshiete! Galko-chan is a lighthearted and humorous look at three very different girls and their frank conversations about themselves and everyday life. No topic is too safe or too sensitive for them to joke about—even though every so often, Galko seems to get a bit embarrassed by their discussions!

Similarity – They remind me of each other because how ridiculous and silly both are. The main female characters are also really similar to each other, Hotaru and Galko are both cute, crazy, easygoing, hot, innocent and funny girls being unintentionally suggestive.

 

6. Takunomi

TakunomiSynopsis – 20-year-old Michiru Amatsuki moved to Tokyo due to a change of career. She decided to live in the woman-only share house “Stella House Haruno” with people of different ages and occupations.

Similarity – They both include a lot of product placement. While Dagashi Kashi covers the area around Japanese sweets, Takunomi covers the area around Japanese drinks (alcoholic liquors). Both have no real “story” but put the product placement in the foreground.

 

5. Demi-chan wa Kataritai (Interviews With Monster Girls)

Demi chan wa Kataritai (Interviews With Monster Girls)Synopsis – Demi-chan wa Kataritai follows Takahashi’s daily life in Shibasaki High School together with his three Demi students—Hikari Takanashi, an energetic vampire; Kyouko Machi, a gentle dullahan; and Yuki Kusakabe, the shy snow woman. Along the way, Takahashi also meets fellow teacher Sakie Satou, a succubus with an aversion towards men. To fulfill his goal of learning more about the Demi, Takahashi decides to conduct casual interviews with the girls to learn more about their abilities, psyche, and interaction with human society. As Takahashi strengthens his bond with his students, he soon discovers that the Demi is not as unusual as he initially believed.

Demi chan wa Kataritai (Interviews With Monster Girls)

Similarity – They don’t have many similarities in theme, plot or characters but they both have this comfy feel with occasional laughs
If you liked Hotaru you will like Hikari and vice versa while Dagashi Kashi is more about the jokes and wacky situations the characters find themselves in Demi is more about the relationships and how they grow during the wacky situations

 

4. Koufuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti)

Koufuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti)Synopsis – he path to becoming a fine wife begins with being an accomplished cook—at least, that is what Ryou Machiko’s late grandmother had led her to believe. For a middle schooler, Ryou’s cooking skills are incomparable; but recently, though Ryou’s food looks appetizing and smells inviting, the taste has not been delicious. Just when the dejected art student comes to terms with the possibility that she might continue living alone for the rest of her life, her aunt tells her that Kirin Morino—Ryou’s second cousin—will begin staying with her every weekend since the younger girl has joined a cram school in Tokyo and aims to attend the same school as Ryou.

Surprisingly, with her cousin’s arrival, Ryou finds that her cooking has vastly improved—apparently, it is not her prowess in the kitchen, but the sharing of the experience with those closest to her that seems to make the flavors shine.

Koufuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti)

Similarity
– appreciate the food
– slice of life
– have a relaxing episode
– contains a comedy that can make you laugh
– have a tiny bit of fanservice

 

3. Non Non Biyori

Non Non BiyoriSynopsis – Asahigaoka might look like typical, boring countryside to most; however, no day in this village can ever be considered colorless thanks to five students of varying ages occupying the only class in the only school in town. The youngest student is the first grader Renge Miyauchi, who brings an unadulterated wit, curiosity, and her characteristic catchphrase, “Nyanpasu!” Then there are the Koshigaya siblings consisting of the quiet ninth grader and elder brother Suguru, diminutive eighth grader Komari, and the mischievous seventh grader Natsumi. The recent arrival of Tokyo-raised fifth grader Hotaru Ichijou, who appears overdeveloped for her age and thus naturally holds an air of maturity, rounds out this lively and vibrant group of five classmates.

Similarity – Dagashi Kashi and Non Non Biyori have different artistic styles but take place in a very similar setting- rural Japan. Dagashi Kashi focuses on a comedy based plot line whereas Non Non Biyori is mainly a slice of life. If you enjoyed the setting in either show you should give the other a try.

 

2. Gintama

GintamaSynopsis – The Amanto, aliens from outer space, have invaded Earth and taken over feudal Japan. As a result, a prohibition on swords has been established, and the samurai of Japan are treated with disregard as a consequence.

However one man, Gintoki Sakata, still possesses the heart of the samurai, although, from his love of sweets and work as a yorozuya, one might not expect it. Accompanying him in his jack-of-all-trades line of work are Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a strong heart, Kagura with her umbrella and seemingly bottomless stomach, as well as Sadaharu, their oversized pet dog. Of course, these odd jobs are not always simple, as they frequently have run-ins with the police, ragtag rebels, and assassins, oftentimes leading to humorous but unfortunate consequences.

Gintama

Similarity – Quirky characters and turning daily routines into something epic and hilarious. Both main characters also run a business and the stories in it make parodies of everything. Many references are made to things in Japan and Parody is used very well.

1. Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san (Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles)

Ramen Daisuki Koizumi san (Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles)

Synopsis – Koizumi is a mysterious and attractive high school student. But what most people don’t know about her is that she’s a ramen master who is always on the lookout for great ramen restaurants. Every day, she goes hunting for real-life places serving the best ramen dishes and delightfully eats the delicious noodles. The way Koizumi downs a giant bowl of ramen–more adeptly than any large man—will amaze and delight you!

Similarity – These two shows, in essence, are surprisingly educating (or advertising?) shows that are taught by characters who are basically connoisseurs of their respective subjects. They animate the passion a group of people may have toward a subject that some might not be well informed about. Both are basically an anime version of advertisements for their respective themes, namely, ramen and snacks.
